Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

Needlessly complicated. In my experience, a custard is completely unnecessary for making good ice cream. Cream, milk, and sugar work just fine by themselves. I just made delicious strawberry ice cream a few days ago with the following recipe:

2/3 cup whole milk
2/3 cup light or heavy cream
1/2 to 2/3 cup sugar, to taste
1 to 2 cups mashed or pureed fresh strawberries, to taste
1/4 to 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Mix cream, milk, and sugar until sugar is dissolved; stir in strawberries and vanilla extract. Follow ice cream maker directions. (I pour the batter into my Kitchen Aid ice cream maker attachment for my mixer, let it run 20-30 minutes, and put the resulting soft-serve ice cream into the freezer to harden.)
